This seminar will explore the advanced practices of Bayesian network and graphical model to high dimensional inter-disciplinary environmental data. Through hands-on experience and real studies from Bayesian perspectives, students will learn the basics of evaluating Bayesian network and graphical analyses, and interpreting and communicating the results. Case studies involving ecological and environmental science will be used to illustrate Bayesian analyses. The statistical programming language R and software packages such as OpenBUGS, JAGS, and STAN will be used in illustrating Bayesian models.
Offered synchronously to all MEES partner institutions via video. Please contact the instructor(s) for access and logistical information as needed.
